Quilters of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to participate in the Bond County Historical Society’s Annual Quilt Block Contest. Whether you’re a new hobby quilter or a veteran quilting professional, challenge yourself with creativity in the 2017 block theme, “County Fair”!
Quilt block entries illustrating the theme “County Fair” can be constructed using any method (piecing, appliqué, embroidery, etc.), but construction should be visible from the back. Blocks will be judged on correct size, color coordination, design, workmanship, and adaptation of theme. Categories are Adults; Children ages 5-8; ages 9-12; and ages 13-18. Prizes will be awarded to first, second, and third place in each category.
Completed quilt blocks are due February 25, 2017. Official Contest Rules and Entry Forms are available at the HSHS Holy Family Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop in Greenville, Illinois and online at www.bondcountyhistorical.org.
Blocks will be exhibited at the 15th Annual Bond County Historical Society Quilt Show on Saturday, March 18, 2017, at the Greenville Free Methodist Church.
